We just walked around the port area and did a little shopping. I cancelled the cruise ship tour "Walking of the trolls" which I was told later was excellent, because we didn't want to spend 6 hours or so on a coach.

Another great Norwegian port - nice walk up 400+ steps brings you to a great view over the town. Superb fish & chips from a snack shack by the river/waterside, along with heated public benches... what more could you want!

Lovely town, climbed Fjellskua which was exhausting but amazing views once you got there, well worth the climb if you can manage it

Took the local bus, 618 from the dock, to Sunnmore Open Air Museum. Enjoyed walking around the different houses brought from all over Norway and the Viking Ship.

I had a bad cold in Alesund so we did not do much. We ended up paying for a taxi to take us up Aksla viewpoint as there was no way I could do the steps that day. It was beautiful. Definitely go here if you visit this port. The taxi driver ... Read More
I had a bad cold in Alesund so we did not do much. We ended up paying for a taxi to take us up Aksla viewpoint as there was no way I could do the steps that day. It was beautiful. Definitely go here if you visit this port. The taxi driver was great as well and told us a number of amusing tales, so that was worth the money. We came back to the centre of town and visited a bar/cafe/restaurant named Anno and that was a great place to while away some time. Great hot chocolates and the food was awesome. Great views of the canal area too. This is a very pretty city. We went for a bit of a walk and loved everything we saw. I'd love to spend some more time here - it was wonderful. Read Less

We where lucky with the weather at this port as it was a beautiful day. Climbed the nearby Big hill for wonderful panoramic views of the whole area. The town itself with its marina is quite picturesque.

A beautiful Jugendstil treasure. After a devastating fire 100 years ago, the town was rebuilt in the art nouveau style, and there are hundreds of lovely buildings. Walk immediately up the 418 steps to the top of Aksla Mountain for superb views. It's a great walking town to explore on your own. The Jugendstilsenteret Museum is a must. Read Less

Took hop on and off bus and with the exception of the aquarium at the far end of the line the entire route could easily have been a walking tour as well.

Beautiful art nouveau buildings. The Nordlys only stopped for a short time but still enough to walk into town, take pictures and re board the ship.
